Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin

I am so happy to announce that “The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin” book is published and now shipping!

In the winter and spring of 2007, my husband James Norton and I traveled all over Wisconsin interviewing and photographing Wisconsin’s master cheesemakers. While Jim wrote amazing profiles of these cheese makers and their stories, I had the chance to document cheesemaking in large and small plants, meet some goats, taste fresh curds and whey, and photograph some of the worlds largest blocks of cheese. This coffee table book, published the University of Wisconsin Press, contains it all!

It is currently shipping from Amazon, and should be available in local bookstores soon. We are also planning some local book signings in Minneapolis and all over Wisconsin, so check back for dates.

Honey Bees at Natural Acres Honey

It turns out that bees are awesome – they make honey, they make honey comb, they buzz, the whole works! We were lucky enough to interview the guys from Wisconsin Natural Acres honey, and I got to photograph the bees at work.

Family reunion at the Lake

The good side (and difficult side) of being a photographer is that you can’t turn it off, so when my mom’s side of the family got together near Racine, Wisconsin this July, I took the opportunity to take some family photos at the lake.

Sand Creek Brewery

Lately, my husband and I have been spending time on the road in Wisconsin photographing stories about food. In Black River Falls, we had the pleasure of meeting the folks at the Sand Creek Brewery, located in a fabulous old stone building right off of the downtown strip.

Cheesemaker photos in catalog of farmstead creameries

I am so excited that several of my photos are appearing in the Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers and the Specialty and Farmstead Dairy brochures for this year from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. Many of these photos were taken during the research for “Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin” which will be on bookshelves starting in November.

Tina & Jesse – post wedding session in Madison

I had a wonderful time with Tina & Jesse in Madison a few weeks back. They were married earlier this spring (yay!) and wanted some more photos of just the two of them. I hadn’t had the chance to shoot much inside the capitol before since it is not a great place for whole wedding parties, but it was to be able to play around in such a cool building, and Tina and Jesse were great sports!
